The Maps 101 podcast that I wrote was more on the life of JFK, this Smithsonian Blog article is more about his death.  Which is more interesting?  It all depends on your perspective as there was plenty of mystery and drama in both life and death for JFK.

National Atlas: Interactive Mapmaker

The National Atlas that is available online has an extensive database for simple online mapping.  This is "GIS-light," an easy way to explore the spatial patterns within U.S. census data and other data sets.  The lists all contain a wide variety of variables, making this a good way to get students to explore potential research topics.  Thanks to the Connecticut Geographic Alliance coordinator for suggesting this link.

I think this website is great! I can see myself using this in a classroom. It provides a clear visual for students and anyone in general to view statistics on a variety of content.
